We have now seen the largest event of all time to be held in Prague come down to the final eight players after the PokerStars Eureka Prague Main Event saw Day 3 come down to that figure, from the 43 that had initially sat down at the start of it.
In a frantic event where there was initially a staggering 1,315 entrants it’s amazing to think that the field has been shrunk down to just eight after only three days of action. Leading that final table is Ami Barer after he had a storming day at the felt to bring his chip count up to 7,280,000 to give him more than a 2 million advantage over his closest rival Stephen Chidwick.
Also on that final table is Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki, though he certainly has some work to do if he wants to win this event. He is currently in sixth place with a chip count of 1,340,000. He is the most experienced player at the table though and will still feel confident of pulling something out of the bag.
Made Eureka Prague Final Table. Biggest no. of entrants (1315) for live event for me. 6/8 in chips. Didnt run good in the end. FT tomorrow.

There were many big names that bowed out of the event on Day 3 as we witnessed Chris Moorman, Kevin MacPhee and Team PokerStars Pro Mattias De Meulder being among them.
Bust. I'm in the bb with 11 bbs & it folds to the sb and he ships. I wake up with A9, but he has AJ. 27th. #EurekaPrague
